[V1]
Forgive me now cause I
Have been unfaithful
Don't ask me why cause I don't know

So many times I've tried
But was unable
But this heart belongs to you alone

[Chorus]
Now I'm in our secret place
Alone in your embrace
Where all my wrongs have been erased
You have forgiven

All the promises and lies
All the times I compromise
All the times you were denied
You have forgiven

[V2]
Forgive me I'm ashamed
I've loved another
I can't explain cause I don't know
No one can take your place
And there is no other
Forever yours and yours alone

[Chorus]
Now I'm in our secret place
Alone in your embrace
Where all my wrongs have been erased
You have forgiven

All the promises and lies
All the times I compromise
All the times you were denied
You have forgiven

{Bridge}
I get down on my knees
Feel your love wash over me
There will never be another
You're the only one forever
And you know I'm yours alone

[Chorus]
Now I'm in our secret place
Alone in your embrace
Where all my wrongs have been erased
You have forgiven

All the promises and lies
All the times I compromise
All the times you were denied
You have forgiven

You have forgiven

    I love this song so much, it's one of those songs that just always calms me down. I like it as well because the message in it is so obvious but not in a badly done way. In a really beautiful way. If you show remorse and ask for it, God will forgive you :)

    I love the piano intro. I don't really like any of skillet's songs, but this is such an awesome song, and the message is so beautiful. No matter what we have done, we have a father who can and will forgive us, and let us come back.

    This song is just the sort of song that reminds me of when me and my boyfriend got back together we both made mistake but we forgave each other :)
